I got asked a while back to take part in the grim dark film club IG page. Go check it out and give it a follow. Some really awesome talent on there and it’s great to get an insight into what inspires them. So, without further ado, here’s my inspiration in a nutshell shell.
A little while ago I did a post about a Mechanicum Kill Team and their box that they shall live in. Well I’ve finished the box! Now all I need to do is create the other three characters 🙂
Hello! So there’s been some interest in the Daemon Ink and with that interest some questions. This post is to hopefully answer those questions.
- Ten members only
- Must be led by an Inquisitor, can be Psyker.
- A second in command must be designated, counts as a leader.
- Second Psyker option eg: Daemon host, Acolyte, Sanctioned, Witch.
- Space Marine – replaces two members
- Sister of Battle. Up to two members but one must replace the second Psyker option.
- Ogryn – replaces two members.
- Aliens are allowed eg: Kroot, Eldar, Tau.
- No Dreadnaughts or Robots.
- Servo Skulls and their like up to three. They don’t count as members.
- No Heavy Weapons.
- Plasma gun or Melta gun allowed but only one per war band.
- Pistols of all kinds are allowed.
- Melee power weapons are allowed.
- Knives and throwing stars are allowed.
- Grenades are allowed
- Jakero digital weapons are allowed, one per hand on Inquisitor character only.
- Daemon weapons are allowed, Inquisitor character only.
- All types of armour is allowed.
- Med packs, three per war band.
- Shields are allowed.
- Exotic war gear is allowed.
- No Jet packs.
When choosing Exotic war gear select from the list below
- Displacer field, war band leaders only.
- Psi-booster, Psykers only.
- Combat stimms, two characters only.
- Pentagrammic wards, one character only.
- Hexagrammic wards, two characters only.
I think that is all for now and I hope it’s clear enough. Any further questions then please ask, I will answer them with further posts.
All the war gear, weapons and psyker powers will be card decks for the event and the rules we will be using are adjusted Frost Grave mechanics.
Greetings one and all! So the times get stranger and the hobby gets better! The internet has be awash with awesome, inspirational projects and it’s been a joy to read, look and watch all the great content pouring out of people in these uncertain times. Two thumbs up to you all!
As you can imagine I’ve not been idle and have a few projects on the go, 4 to be precise. The first is my Sanguinala Procession, which you can find here and the second one you can find right here right now! I’m pretty excited about this one as it’s a Inq28 campaign. The Daemon Ink! I am yet to write any lore for it but I have been busy creating one of the boards and that’s whats on show today.
Using a Mag Bellum set I wanted to create one of the many underground libraries, which are, in part, just sections of a larger subterranean labyrinth of colossal size. Being a Mag Bellum board I can create many different setups with it, which will allow me to write a few different scenarios to go with the back ground. First up though lets take a look at the setup of the first board.
Now for the tour! The image heavy section. 🙂
This board was a joy to make and I can’t wait to see war bands dealing death through the haunting halls of the library labyrinth and either working to see The Daemon Ink succeed or fighting hard to stop it.
Just a short post today my friends.
I’ve been working very hard to get everything ready for Salute this coming Saturday and I think I’m winning 🙂
So to celebrate that small fact here’s a promotional animation for Mag Bellum, which was created by my company Black Edge 3D. This vid can be seen on every social media platform I’m on, with more animations to follow in the near future as we start to expand the range. Very exciting times!!
Hi all! Just a quick one today. I’ve slapped some paint on my cult Limo and started to paint my Patriarch who will be riding in the back ready to pounce on some poor unfortunates. It’s a quick paint job as cool limo’s are always black and shiny and not much else. 🙂
I’ll be taking a 3D printed kit of this model to Salute this year so if you’re there come and say hi and take a look. Loads of other bits and pieces will be on show too. Cheers!
Exciting news! Mag Bellum will be at Salute 2019!! Awesome hey? Its been a hard slog and I still have much to do but I will be there and hopefully you will be too. If so come up and say hi, I will have displays on with new stuff that will be hitting the shop along with AoS28 and Inq28 displays using the Mag Bellum tile system.
You will of course be able to buy a box or two of tiles to get started with the tile system and special deals will also be on offer. I will be updating on the lead up to the event which will be held on the 6th of April 2019 at the London Excel.
To get things started though I need your help. I’ve just launched an Everpress campaign where you can purchase a limited edition T-shirt with the proceeds going to help me make Mag Bellum a reality.
To see the shirt please follow this LINK
Thank you for your support
On another note, and because it’s hard not to have a picture of a miniature in a blog post, my company Black Edge 3D will be doing our first Kickstarter! It’s just a small one with the miniature shown below on offer.
It’s all very Blanchian and was taken from a concept drawing by the talented Stygian Thorne ( Ahmad Jafar ). More details will follow soon as well as more images of her in all her grim dark glory.
Cheers guys and gals 🙂
Hello all! Long time no write on my behalf and I’ve just had a flick through what you’ve all been up to and I’ve got a lot of catching up to do. You busy bunch!
So why the silence? Well I’ve been busy moving work location and trying to keep the business afloat. It’s been hard going these last few months and I’ve had to change my outlook for this year. The first change that I’m in the process of making is the change to the blog. It’s become a shop! I’m still in the process of creating it but when it’s finished it’ll have my Mag Bellum tile system to purchase, random bits and models I create and a download section for large terrain pieces so you can 3D print them yourself. Busy, Busy, Busy!!! So as you can imagine this all takes some time, as well as dealing with the real world and it’s challenges I have, however found some time to get some hobby stuff done, as it’s tied in nicely with my goals for the blog and business.
JANUARY CHALLENGE. Scenery.
Azazel January challenge, I decided to have a bash at trying to finish off one of my Mag Bellum skirmish boards. Geared towards ][nq28 gaming this one is called The Obsidian Room and it’s a prototype for things to come with the system, namely multi level sections. Unfortunately I didn’t quite get it finished but I was damn close!
FEBRUARY CHALLENGE. Fembruary
So Alex decided to get the Fembruary challenge going again and I jumped on it straight away! For this I decided to paint one of my own sculpts the Plague Shepherd. She’s been sitting around half done for a while and so it was time I got the paint out and slap some on her. I’m pretty pleased with how she’s come out and will be adding some plague ridden little creeps for her to herd around soon. Once they are done I will be attempting a kick starter with her, so keep tuned for more info.
Greetings hobby nuts!
So it’s exciting times here and I’m pleased to tell you all that the first wave of Mag Bellum tiles has hit the store! Yippie!! It’s been a hard old slog but I’m pretty happy with the design and the potential it has for war gaming.
Lets have a look at how you buy the sets.
On the Mag Bellum page you will see the payment buttons. The designs of the tiles are displayed here and how many you get of each in the pack ( total of 5 in each ) Selling them this way allows you to select the exact tiles you want to create your board it also has the added benefit of allowing you to spread the cost. Postage is included.
How many tiles will you need to create a board?
A 2ft x 2ft board will need 4 boxes to complete it as it uses 16 tiles to create it. This leaves an extra four tiles, which you can add to the board or leave as more variety for your games if say you are playing a campaign. This size board is perfect for Inq28, AoS28, Killteam or any other skirmish game you play.
Combining sets with your friends will make for battles being fought over many different grounds and themes and up to any size you wish with whatever layout you wish. The variety of boards that can be created are endless.
Extra plate sets.
A plate is the insert which sits in the tile it was made for. These plates are what you create your terrain on like buildings, trees, mounds, piles of rusty junk, objectives and so on. You can purchase extra plates to go with the tiles you already own creating more terrain possibilities for your games without buying the whole tile set.
If you haven’t already, head over to Facebook and like the Mag Bellum page and Instagram of the same name. I will be posting updates on those platforms along with images of boards and what you can achieve with the system.
And I shall leave you with some moody shots of a board I am creating.
This project was on the back burner for a while. That was until Mr Wadu of Convert or Die said he didn’t like Genestealer Cult Limo’s. The shock of it right!? So I just had to move it up the queue and hope that my efforts will change his mind. If it doesn’t then no biggie, I love them and wished an offical one was released when they revamped the range but we got a truck instead, which is a cool kit, but not a Limo.
Any way. Without further ado here’s my Cult Limo. I do hope you like it and thoughts are always very welcome, especially on what colour it should be.
